2021 Indiana Dulcimer Festival

Item Number 2021IDF, Regular price $140.00

July 10 and July 11, 2021
Woodburn, Indiana

Synopsis: Woodburn, Indiana dulcimer festival, hosted by Folkcraft Instruments. Held at the Folkcraft concert hall and wood shop. Choose the classes you want the morning of the festival. Take classes, eat food, go to the concert, make music with the instructors and the other attendees. Why? To learn something, and to have fun. We're cutting off registration at 50 people, so that the festival will stay small and intimate.

Artist/instructors: The 2021 Indiana Dulcimer Festival (IDF) features some of the best artist/instructors on planet earth - Bing Futch, John Keane, Karen Keane, and Wendy Songe. They're ALL Folkcraft Endorsing Artists. We are really lucky to have this amazing roster of instructors booked for the 2021 IDF. Click here to see their biographies.

Classes: We're offering a total of ten classes, and you can see the class choices the morning of the festival. Maybe we'll have the actual classes online before registration closes, but there are no guarantees. But... With Bing, John, Karen, and Wendy each offering two classes, you're sure to find classes to love! We aren't doing class selection online - when you come to the festival, you can just "go" to the classes that appeal to you that day.

Where to stay: We're recommending that you stay at the (hotel TBA early in 2021). NOT the Hampton Inn that we've used before, though. The hotel we choose will be one that allows jamming after hours in the lobby, so be sure to bring your instrument back to the hotel!

MAXDAD Dulcimer

This is actually my first purchase from Folkcraft, and what an INCREDIBLE instrument this is!! The craftsmanship is absolutely beautiful, and I have to say that this is definitely the nicest dulcimer I have ever owned! I was interested in the MAXDAD when I saw Richard do a video of one he had recently made, and I LOVED the sound of it, and I really liked the idea of having a couple extra strings on it to give the instrument more bass. When plugged in, this thing has amazing sound, and I’m SO happy with it! The MAXDAD is the perfect instrument for me, and I highly recommend it!


This is a great collection of songs, well written.


Fits and looks great!

Smart looking shirt

They look good and fit great. They are lightweight and ideal for summer ware. I recomend these shirts.

Nice t-shirt

I really like the Folkroots t-shirt. The printing on the graphics is excellent. I didn't give a 5-star review because I would have preferred a t-shirt made from heavier fabric.
